    These two updates failed on Jan 8 and have failed on each night since with
    error code 80004005. They fail on autoupdate or if an update of each is tried
    individually. A manual (downloaded file) update is available for KB43411. It
    appears to succeed and initially shows up the update history as successful
    but remains in the list of required updates, which continue to fail.

    Using msconfig to start Vista with only MS services and without startup
    applications (so no AV or FW, Diskkeeper not running, etc) makes no

    System has Intel 975X MB, SATA (AHIC, no RAID) HDs, Nvidia 8800 GT video.

    Has anyone encountered this -- for either of these updates -- and found a
    solution or workaround?

    I had a similar problem and had to completely uninstall Comodo firewall
    to get them installed.

    Bingo! I'd thought that using msconfig, which keeps all non-selected services
    from running, would do the trick. But clearly there's something else in

    Uninstalling it allowed the updates to proceed. Re-installing seemed to be

    Best of luck with Microsoft support, I am getting no where fast with a
    gentleman from Update support in the Orient who fails to read what I have
    written regarding KB 935509 and ignores any of the items published on the
    tech net re the same problem. I have followed the instructions in KB 933528
    and this does not resolve as to why KB935509 continues to fail. I have also
    turned of system restore and tried applying the patch in safe mode and tried
    downloading it directly with no success.How do I elevate this issue to
    somebody in Microsoft that wants to resolve the problem?

    Hi John,

    My name is Diana and Robear has asked that I escalate this issue. It
    appears that this is not a Windows Update isssue as you can not install the
    update manually.

    I am going to open a case with our Professional Setup Team who will assist
    you with this issue. I will need the following:
    First and Last Name
    Direct Phone Number
    Email address.

    Once I obtain this information, I will create a case and someone from the
    Pro Setup Team will give you a call to work on this issue.

    PS. Microsoft does care and we will resolve this.
